We are going to start answering questions weekly, these are questions asked by members or non members. Have a question you would like me to answer? Email me Sean@oregoncrossfit.com
The first question: Do I have to be in shape to start training at Oregon CrossFit?
The answer: No…. very simply put No. Let me explain.
When you start at Oregon CrossFit - you do a No Sweat Consult, a 15 minute meeting to understand what you as a prospective client are looking to achieve at OC and a little history on your previous experience. At this consultation we will present you with a plan. The plan we present you with is based upon our years of experience in helping people. We take into consideration your background in training, history of training, current level of fitness or activity level and then we make the plan.
Why does this matter?
No two people are the same, in regards to their goals, past training history, experiences etc.
People come in that don’t need physical exercise to start, they need Nutrition - so we set them up with Nutrition help, maybe 90 days of nutrition and at home workouts gets them ready to start.
A lot of times people come in frustrated with the lack of one on one training they were receiving in their previous environment, so we prescribe personal training. Or maybe personal training and nutrition. Or even a hybrid of personal training and group training.
Some people might have been doing CrossFit or strength and conditioning for years and just need a refresher before going into general population classes as that is their goal is to train with other like minded people and join a “fitness community”.
The point is that there is a place for everyone to start training at OC. The first step is the hardest but if you are wanting to make changes in the new year and be held accountable we can help. Book a Free No Sweat Consult: https://oregoncrossfit.uplaunch.com/join/1256
